Green Flash Brewing Co. Saison Diego (4.3%)

Saison DiegoThis spiced Farmhouse Ale has been brewed with Seville Orange skins, ginger and Grains Of Paradise.
I’m not sure how much of this you can taste, but it’s a lovely beer nonetheless.
There’s a big yeasty warm dough, honey and marigold aroma, and the beer glows golden in my glass.
The malting is sticky with caramel, black pepper (or Grains Of Paradise) and bread crusts which is bolstered by an earthy, slightly mushroom funky, yeasty that comes on all meaty and muscley without becoming overpowering.
Along with the green lemaon leaf hops there’s a spikiness that I’m guessing is the ginger, though you don’t taste it per se and you’d probably not know exactly what it was if you weren’t told on the label.
The finish is long and bitter and dry and subtly tinged with oranges.
Very nice indeed.
